This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, Mini vMac

A staple of Australian schools through the late '80s and early '90s, Goldfields is a simulation game where you look to make your fortune during a gold rush.

You start without money and equipment, but have plenty of options at your disposal - not only can you work at local businesses, but you can buy shares in a carting business or mine, become partners with the market gardener and expand his business, study to become a doctor...and this is all before you actually start looking for gold.

Oh, and watch out for bushrangers, shoddy mine construction, police (if you become a thief or unlicenced miner) and various other threats to your health!

Play it Again page:

First DL: Game folder deflated with StuffIt
Second DL: Mini vMac-bootable 5 MB disk image with System 6.0.8, HyperCard 2.1, and Goldfields 2.1


This is a HyperCard stack; HyperCard 2.x is required to play it.

Goldfields will not run properly from a locked volume, as the stack needs to modify itself to keep track of things like your inventory.

Nice finding of beautiful monochrome artwork, Nicholas!
While you are looking through your files, please consider making a DiskCopy IMG file of desired folders and stuff it afterwards.
That way the oldies may just be dropped on MiniVMac´s working screen. (after unstuffing)
